  1. I take issue with the top word on your list. Adroit comes from the French word for “right”, as in “right handed”. It is the direct antonym of gauche, both in English and in its native French where it means “left”, as in “left handed”. As a non-right-hander I find both of these words to be handist and offensive.

  2. Great list.

    I am reminded of when I was out to dinner with my spouse and another couple, and the other guy dropped his fork on the floor. As he leant down to pick it up he apologized, saying “Sorry, how gauche of me.” Quick as a flash, my hubby replied, “But how adroit you were picking it up.” That tickled my funny bone with the play on words (ref Jim above).

  3. “adumbrate: to very gently suggest” – my dictionary says 1. to produce a faint image or resemblance of; to outline or sketch.
    2. to foreshadow; prefigure.
    3. to darken or conceal partially; overshadow.

  4. Personally, I’ve always found “vehemently” to sound rather lovely. But nice post! 😀

      • Eek! Took me long enough to reply…just got back on WordPress after a ridiculous hiatus.

        vehement: Characterized by forcefulness of expression or intensity of emotion.
